Abstract

A significant high value use of barley is for malting to produce malt as a raw material for the brewing of beer and fermentation and distillation for the production of whisky. Thus, malting quality is the primary objective of various barley breeding programs around the world as there is a premium for malting quality in many markets. This chapter summarizes progress on genetic improvement of malting quality through conventional breeding and marker-assisted selection.
